Per City Ordinance No. 51.02, carts and trash cans MUST BE removed from the curb within 24 hours after scheduled garbage pickup.  A violation of this ordinance will result in a citation being issued.  The exact language from the city ordinance is quoted below.


"It shall be unlawful for any person, firm or corporation owning, managing, operating, leasing or renting any premises or any place where kitchen garbage accumulates or any residence to fail to provide and place the garbage in a disposable container made of plastic, paper or other disposable material of sufficient strength so as to hold the contents without tearing or breaking and so as not to otherwise break or come apart under exposure to rain, windstorm, freezing temperatures or other adverse weather conditions.  No garbage container shall exceed a gross weight of 50 pounds when filled.  Trash, rubbish, leaves or grass clippings shall also be placed in the disposable containers. If non-disposable containers (metal, hard plastic or any other type of garbage cans) are used to place the disposable containers at curb side, such containers must be removed from curb side within 24 hours following scheduled garbage pickup. Any person, firm or corporation who violates this provision shall be issued a citation and subject the offender to the general penalties provided by this code of ordinances and shall also be subject to the confiscation of the non-disposable container or both such fine and confiscation."
